Lee Min Ho Says He was a Top Senior on the Set of ′Running Man′
Despite being the youngest member of the cast of Running Man, Lee Min Ho boasts a career that doesn′t fall behind any other actor.
At the press day event for the film Running Man, held on February 26, Lee Min Ho said with a laugh, "It′s been 15 years since I′ve made my debut; I have more experience than most other actors."
Lee Min Ho debuted in 1998 with a role in the sitcom Soonpoong Clinic.
Jo Eun Ji, fellow cast member, said, "He′s a senior to me," while Kim Sang Ho also said, "He′s a senior in film to me."
Shin Ha Kyun said, "We debuted around the same time."
"I′m at the point where a child actor starts to become an adult actor," Lee Min Ho said. "I′m concerned on how I should come over this phase. If I try to age more naturally without caging myself in, I believe I′ll be able to become a more mature adult."
Lee Min Ho appears in Running Man as the son of Cha Jong Woo (Shin Ha Kyun), who is framed as a murderer and is forced to go on the run.
Lee Min Ho has garnered successes with such pieces as Howling, The Great Seer, Rooftop Prince and The Sun and the Moon.
Running Man is about how a man becomes a suspect wanted by everyone in the nation after witnessing a murder in the middle of Seoul.
The film is also the first Korean film to have drawn investments from 20th Century Fox, a famed movie studio in America.
